Full description

HIDDEN AWAY! AFFORDING WONDERFUL UNDULATING COUNTRYSIDE VIEWS AND ON THE SOUTHERN EDGE OF DANBURY COMMON is this late Victorian residence. Situated within a National Trust area and along a private lane, this property, we understand, was built by Mr William Baker of Bakers of Danbury Ltd (Period Restoration Company) for his own occupation in 1896. Little Langley is presented to the highest order and includes many period features one would expect of a home from this era..... ornate fireplaces, pine internal doors with brass furniture, quarry tiled floors and sash windows. Accommodation includes a split level loft room ideal for use as a games room or home office, four bedrooms, three reception rooms, conservatory and a superb kitchen/breakfast room. Externally the gardens of approximately a third of an acre are most secluded and include two large sun terraces and numerous trees and shrubs. There is a double length garage along with a workshop and garden store. This property, situated in a truly amazing position is a real 'one off' which cannot be fully appreciated externally.
